Re: "P" permanently on my 21DM183
Having trouble looking up your model number so could you recheck it, In the mean time set may have got into a service menu, try while the set is on and from the front controls hold vol- and chanel - at the same time

You will need a Zenith remote with a menu button
There should be a "hidden" menu. Before you access it, I want to warn you, do NOT change any values of anything you don't understand what it is or does. You can PERMANENTLY DAMAGE YOUR TV. Also, write down the original values of anything you change before changing it!!!!! If you still want to proceed(at your own risk), here ya go. 1. Press and hold the menu button until the menu comes up on screen and then times out (5 - 10 seconds) 2. Immediately press 9, 8, 7, 6, Enter. 3. The set should now be in the service menu mode. To access most of the features selection 00 needs to be toggled from 0 to 1 4. After your adjustments 00 needs to be toggled from 1 to 0 5.Feature 16 unlocks the auto-program (change to 0)
It is possible that the electron-gun inside of the CRT is having an intermittant short. It is also possible that there is an intermitttant failure in the bias or drive circuits for the CRT electron-gun.
The TV service tech would have to run some tests to determine the actual fault, and then the failed components.
If the CRT is at fault, the set will not be worth to service.
Sounds like it is a widescreen TV stuck in standard view mode.
Should have a menu option called widescreen or movie format.
Do you see the whole picture squeezed down or is it actually cutting off the sides of it?
